From the studio that brought you The Jungle Book, comes, Walt Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon,” a reimagining of Disney’s Cherished family film centered on an orphaned boy named Pete ad his best friend Elliot, who just happens to be a dragon– on Digital HD and BLU-RAY + DVD.

Families can now embark on the journey with Pete and his dragon in the comfort of their home. During this holiday season, this will be a great heartwarming gift to entertain the entire family.
I remember when I was just a little kid when the original 1977 movie, “Pete’s Dragon” came out. It was such an amazing movie, some have forgotten the beloved movie, until a wonderful 2016 remake surfaced. Families and friends will be enthralled by this marvelous movie, followed by never-before-seen bonus features.
The Blu-Ray version bonus extras include as follows:

This was truly a magical movie. It took an old beloved children’s film and brought it back with a new and improved approach. I enjoyed the new look of Elliot, a more modern and updated dragon.The animation that went behind creating such an awestruck characters must’ve been time consuming. This will be a wonderful gift this holiday season for any adult who enjoyed the original 1977 movie, or a young child who can make their very own memories with this family movie.
